OnePlus 3 was one of the major highlights of 2016, but this hasn’t stopped the company from stepping up its game with a refreshed OnePlus 3T.
Released on November 22, OnePlus 3T is now official and it can be purchased from the OnePlus website. The company has remained unique in how it sells its handsets, offering them strictly via its online store, nonetheless, huge success has come its way – success that even led to rescheduled release dates for some markets due to the unprecedented demand for OnePlus 3 in others.
The success of OnePlus 3 was partly because of the price of the phone combined with the hardware on offer. While the new OnePlus 3T continues just about everything that the Chinese company is known for, the price of the new phone has hiked just a little bit. Still, the hardware specs, features and design of the phone is everything you can want in a phone.
The phone keeps the same design as its older brother, but it adds a new gunmetal color variant. According to the OnePlus website, this is the only color variant that is available for immediate shipping. As for the soft gold color variant, it has been listed as “coming soon.”
OnePlus 3T has superior specs on the inside than its older counterpart. The phone is powered by a newer, faster and more energy efficient Snapdragon 821 SoC, but it keeps the 6GB RAM and 64GB of non-expandable storage. To spice things up, the 3T gets a larger 128GB storage variant but keeps the same RAM.
The Chinese OEM has also embraced the love for selfies by adding a new 16MP snapper on the front panel of the OnePlus 3T. However, the rear keeps the same 16MP snapper, but it gets a bunch of new features that add to the superiority of the images. Another impressive upgrade of the OnePlus 3T is the new 3400mAh battery unit, up from 3000mAh used on the original model. This promises a longer battery life and even though bigger, charging time will still be shorter thanks to the company’s fast charging technology known as Dash Charge.
So, if you are interested in grabbing yourself the latest OnePlus 3T, you can visit the official website where the 64GB variant is priced at $439 while the 128GB variant at $479.
